Design and build your very own flying creation to test in the Wind Tubes. See your creation take flight and soar to the ceiling, and defy gravity by hovering high overhead… or just fall to the floor. It’s all about air and invention, with a little bit of mid-air mayhem.

Come make your own pinwheel in this fun weekend workshop. Use colour paint pens to create patterns and customise your own unique pinwheel design.

Our resident pinwheel expert will show you how to decorate, fold and construct your pinwheel. Blow on it to make it spin. Watch the colours and patterns blend together as the pinwheel rotates. Test your finished pinwheel in the Wind Tubes exhibition then take it home to play.
